Tessa Thompson Opened Up About Her Sexual Identity And Her Relationship With Janelle Monáe Saying She Loves Her ‘Deeply’
Happy Pride and congratulations mi gente! Adding to the spectacular mood that Pride puts us in, is a recent coming out story that Marvel fans will love. In a recent profile interview, “Sorry to Bother You” and “West World” actress Tessa Thompson opened up about her sexual identity and her rumored relationship with singer Janelle Monáe.
During her interview, Thompson completely owned her attraction to men and women.
Speaking with Net-A-Porter about her LGBTQ+ fanbase, Thompson admitted that she “can take things for granted because of my family – it’s so free and you can be anything that you want to be. I’m attracted to men and also to women. If I bring a woman home, [or] a man, we don’t even have to have the discussion.”
On her relationship with Monáe and the “shipping” trend that has sparked around their rumored relationship, Thompson said “We love each other deeply… We’re so close, we vibrate on the same frequency. If people want to speculate about what we are, that’s okay. It doesn’t bother me.”
The big news comes on the heels of what fans had hoped to have been hints about her being bisexual.
Fans of the Afro-Dominican-Mexican actress have suspected that she has been dropping hints about her sexuality for months. Last year, after the premiere of her role as Valkyrie in “Thor: Ragnarok” the actress confirmed her personal belief that her character was bisexual (the director of the film previously suggested he thought she might be a lesbian). Responding to a fan’s comment on Twitter that the Marvel superhero was a lesbian, Thompson corrected them writing “She’s bi. And yes, she cares very little about what men think of her. What a joy to play!” During this month of Pride, the actress had hearts pattering with anticipation once again when she turned her Instagram bio to the LGBTQ+ Pride flag with the word “YES” beside it.
It didn’t take long for Thompson’s reveal to go viral on Twitter.
TBH this news is literally as good as when Beyonce drops a surprise album or when Thompson and Monáe appear in a music video.
Or for her fans to get all kinds of emotional and excited.
I mean seriously I am going to be talking about this all day.
Seriously, her coming out is opening new doors for people and their fantasies.
Because people can dream, know what I’m sayin’?
And giving everyone else new goals to think about for their big coming out day.
Congratulations reina! You’re officially this year’s queen of pride.
